The Journal of Literature and Science invites submissions (complete
essays, or abstracts) for forthcoming issues.

The journal is dedicated to the publication of academic essays on the
subject of literature and science, broadly defined. Essays on the major
forms of literary and artistic endeavour are welcome (the novel, short
fiction, poetry, drama, periodical literature, visual art, sculpture,
radio, film and television). The journal encourages submissions from all
periods of literary and artistic history since the Scientific Revolution;
from the Renaissance to the present day. The journal also encourages a
broad definition of ‘science’: encapsulating both the history and
philosophy of science and those sciences regarded as either mainstream or
marginal within their own, or our, historical moment. However, the
journal does not generally publish work on the social sciences. Within
these confines, essays submitted to the journal may focus on the literary
and scientific productions of any nation or group. All essays should be
interdisciplinary in focus, offering an original view of both the
literary or artistic subject matter and the science or sciences under
